This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (hppa2.0n-hp-hpux11.00, Motif Version 2.1.0)
 of 2002-03-18 on rds294
configured using `configure  --cache-file=/dev/null 
--host=hppa2.0n-hp-hpux11.00 --prefix=/home/rdstt1/t901353/local 
--with-x-toolkit=motif --with-png'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

sleep-for doesn't come back....ever...sit-for sits forever unless you do some
input.

The following shows this problem:

emacs -q 
esc-: (sleep-for 2)

The cursor turns to a watch and emacs just sits there.

thanks
tom
